This museum is not near anything else we wished to visit (the National Mall/Smithsonian museums, the Zoo, etc) but my children really wanted to go. We had to pay to park in the garage across the street ($16) because the street parking was all full. We were prepared to pay $32 for the 4 of us to enter ($11 adult, plus 3 $7 children) but since it was Earth Day all tickets were $5. I would say, after having been through it, $5 is a more appropriate price than $7 or $11. There are basically only two exhibit galleries. One to the left was Peruvian Gold - interesting, but nothing spectacular. The other, to the right, was the more long term gallery, including the covers of every NG magazine in its history, an enormous globe, a few interactive screens (including one game that morphs players into bears - the kids liked that). There was a free movie playing that day, which we all enjoyed. Overall it was a nice way to spend 2 hours but we'd probably never visit again.
